Really good product

WD Blue 1TB SA510 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive SSD - WDS100T3B0A
WD Blue 1TB SA510 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive SSD - WDS100T3B0A

Pros: I definitely wasn't going for optimal performance or anything when I bought this drive, I was just trying to get my Xbox one to work again and hoorah!!!! The drive made it work again, western digitals 2.5" HDD drives tend to have a lifespan of about 1-10 years LOL!,This one lasted about the latter of the lifespan which all in all is good, this drive is so much better though, loading times for games are halfed if not reduced 75%, games like red dead redemption 2, horizon 4/5, Halo Infinite has moderate loading times to begin with but it's still improved. If anyone else is considering this take the two top pieces of your Xbox off one being the outer case, the front of the outer case has a ribbon that has to be very carefully removed, !!!!!!extremely fragile!!!!!! and then with a T9 torx take off the top of the metal inner case and bam it's right there. I went down to taking out my motherboard and wiping it with isopropyl and cleaning all plastics in the dishwasher LOL!!! Came out perfectly. Install this drive when you're done everything and anything you want to do cleaning wise , put it back the way it was, and unscrew the HDD and using the added SATA connector push the new drive down into the two little holes to secure it and screw it back in the way it was. Hook it all back up, make sure everything is tight and connected into the connection as far as it'll go, without pushing like a madman, once you think everything is hooked up oh boy get ready, now you're going to screw everything on-top back together, make sure your inner two black and one white plastic clips for your motherboard etc are in place, forgot to mention those, and then proceed to enjoy living hell putting the plastic back together. This is a process that you will have to figure out for the front, does it work easier with the front already attached to the top ? I don't know. Does anyone? Probably not. Don't screw up the ribbon on the front either, if you're like me you and the ribbon will become acquainted real quick. Make sure that's in place, snap everything together and make sure it's actually together, once everything is together go ahead and get on your computer with a good sized thumb drive, I have a 32GB from China that I literally got for free, so figure it out LOL!!!, Once you've got your thumb drive hook it up to your computer and go to the recommended website on Xbox dot com to obtain your offline update file, once you've downloaded the folder you're going to make sure your thumb drive is formatted into NTFS and then copy the entire $Systemupdate folder into the drive with nothing else. Do not have anything else except this folder. Stick into the side or the back of the Xbox once you're done and then fire up the Xbox, if everything went well it should be some sort of error or something and you should see the option to do a offline update. Do the update and let it do it's thing and voila. You should have an SSD running Xbox one / s/X , this original quick how to is for the original OG Xbox one , but it is all very similar for the other editions of the One. Happy gaming and if something doesn't work or this isn't enough detail don't come at me go on YouTube and figure it out.

Cons: The SSD should be cheaper, the way people pump these out it doesn't make sense that such a basic drive is 109 dollars or something, an NVME 500-1TB will run you twenty dollars more and exceedingly better performance depending on application.

Overall Review: Excellent, works well, just work on the price. Honestly inflation is the biggest scam this whole century has ever seen. What a bunch of B.S. Everything has to go up "because"

11900k, COMPLETE RIP-OFF

Intel Core i7-11700K - Core i7 11th Gen Rocket Lake 8-Core 3.6 GHz LGA 1200 125W Intel UHD Graphics 750 Desktop Processor - BX8070811700K
Intel Core i7-11700K - Core i7 11th Gen Rocket Lake 8-Core 3.6 GHz LGA 1200 125W Intel UHD Graphics 750 Desktop Processor - BX8070811700K

Pros: The good thing about the 11 700k is that it is basically an 11900k with a slightly higher base clock and a slightly slower turbo clock. Now for these reasons I'm going to call Intel out on this B-S in the cons section.

Cons: The con is that if you bought an 11900k you've literally gotten ripped off $200 for nothing just buy the 11700k and you have an 11900k.

Overall Review: My overall review is that this is an excellent CPU it has eight cores 16 threads it will Turbo up to 5 GHz which is more than fast enough especially with 8 cores. I have not seen it do any blender tests but I'm guessing that it would do just fine. If all you care about is core count then I would definitely recommend getting a 10900k or a 12900k. In any instance though I would definitely never recommend getting the 11900k it is literally just a symbol of status and if you actually want gaming performance and to be able to save a few bucks get the 11700k.
